Background Discussion

On September 25, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved an Agreement with Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc., for necessary and proper medical, psychiatric, dental, and other health care services for persons in the care, custody, and control under the County.

As it relates to Outside Services, the Agreement states:  County agrees to pay Armor on a reimbursement basis for Outside Services for documented actual costs in excess of the Outside Services limit of $750,000 per contract year.  This agreement includes an amount of $750,000 in the annual base price of the Agreement as an allocation for Outside Services costs.  If the $750,000 allocation is not fully spent during the contract year, Armor provides a credit to the County in the amount of the unspent balance.  If Outside Service costs exceed $750,000, Armor will share in the costs between $750,000 to $950,000, Armor being responsible for 50% and the County being responsible for 50%.  Should the Outside Services costs exceed $950,000 for the contract year, the County will reimburse Armor at 100%.

To track and monitor expenses, Armor reports on a monthly basis with specific descriptions and corresponding dollars associated to Outside Services usages.

The circumstances related to this years cost were discusssed with the Board in detail during the February worksession.  The large amount of outside services were attributed in most cases to eight inmates who had longterm health conditions.
